Water conservation is important in Colorado. The arid landscape here can render water scarce at times. This past winter, we had the good fortune of quite a lot of water, but even in times of plenty, it is good to save.

So, here are five simple and easy water conservation tips:

1) Fix Your Drips

Make sure none of your faucets drip. If they do drip a little, fix it. Every small drip adds up, and can save you hundreds of gallons over time.

2) Take Shorter Showers.

This suggestion may not be the most popular, but it is much more so than not taking a shower at all. Shorter showers can drastically reduce your water consumption. The environmental protection agency estimates that of all indoor water usage, showers account for nearly 40%. Keeping your showers under 5 minutes can result in a significant decrease in your water bill.

3) Water Your Lawn at Night

Watering during the heat of the day increases evaporation, and consequently uses more water. If you have an automated sprinkler system, simply set the timer appropriately. If not, simply water in the morning, or once the sun goes down.

4) Make Sure Your Toilets are Not Leaking

A leaking toilet can be silent, so make sure to regularly check that the flapper fully closes. If it is not, replace it ($3).

5) Install a Water Saving Shower Head

Water saving shower heads are inexpensive, but they can save drastic amounts of water each month. Many older shower heads use over 5 gallons of water per minute, and new water conserving shower heads drop that mark to under 2 gallons per minute. With EPA estimates of shower water usage averaging close to 40 gallons per day, that quickly adds up to substantial water savings.

Taking the time to check these few common places for water loss can help you save hundreds of gallons, if not thousands of gallons, and substantial costs on your water bill. If you find that you have a leak, but do not know how to fix it, give us a call and we will help you find the best solution.

If are looking for even more tips, here is a great list of 100+ things you can do to save water.

Let’s be honest: Nobody thinks about their plumbing and heating until there’s a problem.

What most people don’t realize is that most of those problems can be anticipated and often avoided with regular maintenance – usually at a far lower cost than a repair or replacement.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
